THE European Union Film Festival (EUFF) marks its exhilarating return to selected Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) with critically-acclaimed movies from across Europe.

Now in its 17th year in Malaysia, this much-anticipated event promises to showcase the dynamism, breadth and innovation of contemporary European cinema.

The European Union Film Festival will take place at selected Golden Screen Cinemas in Klang Valley (Oct 20 to 30), George Town (Nov 3 to 9), Kuching (Nov 17 to 23) and Kota Kinabalu (Dec 1 to 7).

Since its first edition in 2000, the EUFF has brought together film enthusiasts, students, expatriates, families and even those who are joining in for their first “foreign-language” film experience.

The festival has always been welcomed in Malaysia as one of the biggest international film festivals in the country.

Spanning drama, romance, comedy, horror, adventure and documentary, the wide-ranging programme reflects the region’s enduring status as a hotbed of cultural diversity and creativity.

Twenty-one award-winning movies from 19 European countries will be showcased, including winner of six GOYA awards Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed, César 2016 awarded Standing Tall, as well as German Film award winner Who am I - No System is safe.

EUFF tickets are sold at RM8 (normal seats inclusive of GST).

Tickets can be purchased via GSC E-payment at, GSC Mobile App (iPhone and Android) or at participating GSC outlets.

Four movies – Living is Easy with Eyes Closed (Spain), Have You Ever Been on the Moon (Italy), Dreams of a life (UK), Children of Glory (Hungary) – will be screened for free.

The 17th European Union Film Festival is organised by the Delegation of the European Union to Malaysia, in collaboration with the embassies and cultural institutions of 17 European Union member states, Norway and Switzerland.

The film festival is also supported by local partner organisations GSC, EUNIC Malaysia, Society of Performing Arts Kota Kinabalu and CinemaOnline.
